Hello, I am new to this. I have been Breastfeeding for 15 months now. I would pump but wether it was in a sippy or bottle he refused since 4 months.until now i thought i was doing the right thing. breastfeeding is healthy? We went to my sons peditrition for his 15 month well child and found he still only weighs 21.4 as he did at his 12month well child. he was sick last month with the hands foot mouth disease and didnt eat for a week due to the blisters in his mouth. I also started a full time job and I was advised to stop breastfeeding that way he will only learn to take whole milk. This has been since friday. we have been down this road before and i could only watch my baby cry for one night. i feel like hes in agony due to he cant nurse and now hes on a strike. hes not even eating his foods now Worried mommyView Thread
